Christian Nationalists for the Arts!

Anchorage Daily News, in their continuing Palin muckraking, has delved deeper into the exact purported agenda and philosophy of the Governor's religious heroes, like Pastor "Witch Doctor" Muthee: a little something they call Christian Nationalism.

Extreme Christian Nationalists not only believe that the United States was founded as a Christian nation but that its institutions should be run entirely by fundamentalist or evangelical Christians. They believe they have a mandate to purge our institutions of "humanists" who believe that humans are in control of their own destiny, progressive Christians and non-Christians. They believe there are seven areas of society that must be controlled, the so-called Seven Mountains Strategy: church, family, education, government and law, media, arts and entertainment and business.
Well at least someone's got an arts policy.

Seriously, if it matters to better matter to us.
